Struggling with flexibility? Want higher leg extensions? Want to jump higher or turn better? Let us help you break down the mechanics of your movement and work with you to improve your technique for optimal performance.

Here’s what people have to say about AZ Dance Medicine Specialists:
“Alexis is wonderful! She helped me with ankle impingement. She knew what was going on immediately, gave me the tips I needed to fix the problem complete with what to do if I overdo it. What she provided worked immediately and I have been dancing and working out pain free for months!
~ Kelly K., Colorado
“I’m a full time dancer and I approached Alexis for physical therapy after I injured my ankle. She has been amazing throughout this whole recovery process. Very knowledgeable and patient; you can tell she cares and knows what she is doing! Highly recommend!!”
~ Carla C., Arizona
“I have known Alexis for several years now, first as a dance teacher and then as a physical therapist. My 14 year old is a competitive club swimmer who injured her shoulder and within one visit my daughter was already on the road to recovery. I highly recommend her!”
~ Jennifer B., Arizona
I worked with Alexis AZ DanceMed for the first time yesterday and it was a revelation. It marked the first time in a long time that I felt hopeful about regaining function in my right hip joint. With Alexis’s methods, I was amazed to see that my body can still learn new patterns. Things shifted within an hour.
